Application and planning of field polymer floods
- 184 Downloads
In this chapter, it is intended firstly to discuss the process of identifying candidate reservoirs for polymer flooding via screening criteria and then to describe the assessment procedure when a likely candidate reservoir has been selected for further study. In the screening phase, the various rules of thumb which assist in the original selection of the candidate reservoir for polymer flooding will be enumerated. The subsequent study of the prospect involves more detailed assessment of the reservoir, the planning and carrying out of laboratory work and the development and carrying out of a programme of reservoir simulation. This more detailed assessment is very similar to the planning stage of other improved oil recovery projects.
